Examines how the Chippewa Indians of northern Wisconsin who struggled to restore the tradition of spear fishing in the waters outside their reservation. Illustrates the political and racial opposition they encountered. Relates the re-emergence of traditional fishing rights to the Chippewa prophecy that speaks of seven fires representing seven periods of time, the seventh being a time when lost traditions would be renewed.
